I find salmon rich enough and so I don't use the butter. Instead I brush with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Or you can brush with balsamic dressing (Renee's is nice). I wash and freeze my cilantro which makes it very easy to chop finely and it is "wilted" and perfect for the recipe so you don't have to sautee in butter. For colour I like to add a couple of thinly sliced rings of red pepper. Voila! lower in fat - no trans fat from the butter and pretty too!!

Excellent! I too thought butter might be too heavy so I brused the salmon with olive oil and squeezed fresh LIME juice ..it only compliments the cilantro and jalepeno flavor..yummy!

We LOVED this fish. I am just starting to eat salmon and I was so impressed with it. I was afraid that the jalepeno would over power the fish but it didn't. We are usually stuck with chicken and beef recipes and have been trying to branch out a bit this recipe will definatly become part of our regular menu.
